Sinful Saviours – Words

Nothingness gripped meas I penned downmy thought,Subtly and slowlywhirling the wrath, They twisted, twirled,boasted a little high,Causing ripplesand disappearingover the brim, Little did I knowthey were mockingat me,Giggling, laughing,my wordsat their mercy, Time ticked,the paper still blank,My wordsbegging and pleading,breathing throughthe wreck, Thoughts like firefliesglowed in the dark,Vanishing in the lightsrelapsed into their arch, DeterminationContinue reading “Sinful Saviours – Words”
